Sunrise of Pleasanton Team Member Melissa

Melissa Malek, LVN

Executive Director

“I began my career in senior living in 1999 as a floor nurse in an assisted living community in Kirkland, WA. I knew right away that I had found my calling. Although I’ve worked in different positions and had various job titles through the years, my passion to serve seniors remains constant.

My job has given me the opportunity to wear many different hats: I love visiting and laughing with residents every day, leading a compassionate group of individuals to serve others, and helping seniors and their families find solutions to tough issues. Sunrise empowers me to truly live out the important mission of championing quality of life for all seniors. I am thankful to do what I love every day.

In my spare time, I love to travel and spend time with my family—including my husband and two young boys. We spend a lot of weekends watching the boys play baseball. We live in Brentwood, California.”

Business Office Coordinator

"In 2002, I joined the Sunrise family.  I began as a concierge, and since 2008, I have been a Business Office Coordinator.

My favorite part of my job is that I am able to show my passion and joy in the services I provide to our residents, team members, and families each day. Also, as a training leader, I enjoy being able to support other Business Office Coordinators in their role and offering support to communities when needed.

The best part of working for Sunrise is working side by side with dedicated team members who believe in the mission to champion the quality of life for our residents. I have grow personally and professionally ever since I joined the family here at Sunrise.

In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors and going on hikes and walks with my yellow lab, Bentley. I also love spending quality time with my family and friends."

Resident Care Director

"I am a nurse by profession, a writer at heart, and a dreamer in spirit. I have been working with seniors for over 8 years. I left my beautiful country, Philippines, when my husband brought me to the U.S. while he was serving in the U.S. Air Force.

I recently joined Sunrise due to my belief in the company’s mission of championing quality of life for all seniors. I have always envisioned an inviting environment, excellent care from attentive staff, and the freedom to make choices. Sunrise lives up to all of these, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve as Sunrise of Pleasanton’s Resident Care Director.

I love writing. I find joy in reading them a few years later and reminiscing about the wonderful memories and life lessons I’ve learned along the way. My family and I enjoy going on spontaneous trips, and I play DJ while on the road. I enjoy cooking while my husband and daughter are out exploring on their bikes."

Maintenance Coordinator

“I have been working in the senior living industry for more than 10 years, and spent two of those years at Sunrise of La Jolla. I've worked in care and activities before transitioning over to the maintenance coordinator role. I am excited to have the opportunity to help open our new Pleasanton community and take on the maintenance coordinator role here.

I found my passion as the maintenance coordinator because I truly see my role making a difference in the residents’ lives. Each day I am able to serve them and make their Sunrise home the safest and best place to be.

When I have free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and my beloved pets. I also love to travel and take every chance I get to experience all that life has to offer.”
